I truly enjoyed reading this book by Melanie L. Bennett. The story is about a year in the life of a girl who has autism. The obstacles she overcame in that year were amazing.
I have a son who has autism so I could relate to this book on so many levels. There were many times that I laughed out loud because I knew exactly what was going on, for having experienced it myself with my son. I found myself cheering the family and caregiver on throughout the book and was really rooting for the girl to overcome certain obstacles. I had tears in my eyes either from laughing or getting choked up as I went through this book.
I am so glad to have read this as it was nice to see someone else with similar challenges as my son. It makes one feel not so alone on this journey. I appreciate the author taking the time with this child in the book and for sharing the story with us readers. It really was a great book with a good insight into the life of a child with autism.
I highly recommend this book and give it 5 ***** all the way around. It was excellent writing and well worth the read.
